In Nicaragua, legal marriages can be performed by either a Nicaraguan notary or judge. The Canadian Embassy consular officer may authenticate foreign marriage documents, but this is not required for the marriage to be considered valid outside of Nicaragua. The fee for the authentication of a document is $30.00. The civil marriage is considered the legal marriage though the family may also require the church wedding.

To legally marry in Nicaragua, a foreigner must present a valid passport (or other acceptable identification document) and sometimes a birth certificate.  In addition, persons previously married must present evidence of the dissolution of the previous marriage (e.g. a divorce decree or death certificate of the previous spouse) and/or proof that they are single.

With the documentation listed above and two witnesses with Nicaraguan cedulas, a Nicaraguan notary or judge can marry you.


The groom must be over the age of 21 or legally emancipated through court order.  The bride must be over the age of 18 or legally emancipated through court order.

If the bride and/or the groom are under the ages listed above and have not been emancipated, the parents and/or custodians of the underage partner must consent to the marriage.

Impediments to marriage are mental disability, pending dissolution of prior marriages, among others. It is illegal to marry your sibling in Nicaragua.

Nicaragua is party to the Central America Border Control Agreement (CA-4). Under the terms of this agreement, tourists may travel within any of the CA-4 countries (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua) for a period of up to 90 days, without completing entry and exit formalities at border immigration checkpoints. This period begins at the first point of entry into any of the CA-4 countries. Fines are applied for travelers who exceed this 90-day limit, although a 30-day extension can be made before the 90 days limit expires.

All nationals referred to in the chart above can obtain a tourist card on arrival for US$10 for touristic stays of up to 90 days (although they can be issued for as little as 30 days), providing they hold valid travel documents and, in the case of business travelers, a letter from their employer and/or company in Nicaragua. Visas for Nicaragua are not required by nationals referred to in the chart above.

Alta Bar is usually considered the best club in Managua, though it can be pricey. The reasoning for this is usually the quality of its amenities, food, design, and music. ome places, however, such as Reef and Alta Bar can surprise you with cocktail prices reaching $14 or higher for the finer drinks. On that note, those two bars/clubs are probably the fanciest in Galerias. If you’d rather go somewhere a little less expensive, you can go to Karaoke, a nearby club that becomes a karaoke venue after 12 a.m. Reef and Karaoke are the only two venues that offer live music in Galerias.

Examples of typical dishes include Nactamel, a doughy corn mix (called ‘masa’) wrapped in a plantain leaf then cooked with a pork, rice, potatoes, and other vegetables; or a guirilla, a flat-bread made from corn which is sweetened and served with crumbly white cheese. Fruits used in Nicaraguan cuisine include jocote, mimbro, and bananas. Avocados are also used avidly when in season. Corn is not just used for making food, but drinks also, such as chica (a cold drink sweetened and usually flavored with banana or vanilla), and pinololillo (a cornmeal and cacao beverage mixed with water or milk).
